Smith-Midland wins I-66 contract worth $9 million

Fauquier-based Smith-Midland will supply about 46 miles of its J-J Hooks precast concrete safety barriers for the I-66 express lane project outside the Capital Beltway.
Fauquier-based Smith-Midland Corp. has won a $9-million contract to supply precast concrete safety barriers for a project to build Interstate 66 express lanes outside the Capital Beltway.

FAM Construction LLC will buy up to 245,000 linear feet of Smith-Midland’s J-J Hooks precast concrete safety barriers.

The 22.5-mile long I-66 project will provide two express lanes, alongside three regular lanes, from I-495 to Route 29 at Gainesville and space in the median reserved for future transit options. In addition, the project includes 4,000 park-n-ride spaces, safety and operational improvements at key interchanges, and bicycle and pedestrian upgrades.

Smith-Midland will deliver the first 40,000 linear feet of barrier in the first quarter of 2018. Each night the crew from Smith-Midland will install more than a half-mile of barrier. Final delivery of the order should be completed by the third quarter of 2018.

“This is the largest J-J Hooks order in the history of Smith-Midland,” said Matthew Smith, the company’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We are proud to be part of the team that will help alleviate the congestion on this critical transportation corridor.”

Headquartered at Midland, the company also has manufacturing plants in Reidsville, N.C., and Columbia, S.C.
